Egg... or solving the main philosophical problem.

Egg (noun)


1.The oval or round body laid by a female bird, fish, reptile, insect, etc., containing a supply of nutrients, a protective membrane, and, when fertilized, the embryo of a new individual: many kinds of eggs have a thin, brittle shell as an outer covering2. an artistic form of nonverbal communication.


2.Something having the ovoid shape of an egg.


3. Jewelry object in ovoid shape ( Faberge Eggs ).


The chicken or the egg causality dilemma is commonly stated as "which came first, the chicken or the egg?"

To ancient philosophers, the question about the first chicken or egg also evoked the questions of how life and the universe in general began.

Cultural references to the chicken and egg intend to point out the futility of identifying the first case of a circular cause and consequence. It could be considered that in this approach lies the most fundamental nature of the question. A literal answer is somewhat obvious, as opposed to the logical fallacy of the metaphorical view, which sets a metaphysical ground on the dilemma.

Many ancient and contemporary philosophers tried to solve or explain this problem. It was perplexing to them and commonly discussed by others as well.

I’m not philosopher and by my opinion the solution depends of what kind of egg or which hen is participating in this game. Guess many simple people think as I do. I was figuring out how this problem could be solved by some scientists on some faculty of the University of Toronto (U of T, or simply Toronto) is a public research university in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, situated north of the city's Financial District on the grounds that surround Queen's Park....

Honestly just love these great building and all atmosphere there...
